Little People's Isabel Roloff shows off her baby bump at 22 weeks pregnant and talks about her battle with anxiety

ISABEL Roloff revealed she's now 22 weeks pregnant as she showed off her baby bump.

The Little People, Big World star, 25, announced last month that she's expecting her first child, a baby boy, with her husband Jacob.


And on Sunday, Isabel gave fans an update on her pregnancy as she displayed her growing baby bump.

The reality star cradled her bump while posing in a khaki maxidress and plaid shirt teamed with flip flops in the sweet shot.

She captioned it simply: "22 weeks today."

Isabel revealed in another post on her Instagram Stories that she was struck with anxiety while enjoying a cinema date with Jacob.

ANXIETY STRUGGLES

"Last night Jacob and I saw a movie and dinner for a date night, which felt like the firs time in forever since life has been truly crazy lately," she wrote.

"It was so good to spend time. But halfway through the movie my anxiety was like, 'Are the dogs OK at home, what if they got out the gate? 'You haven't felt baby kick in a while, is he still OK in there?'

"And I had to reassure myself so many times and allow myself to enjoy a date night with my husband. I don't know why I felt like sharing besides acknowledging that having anxiety is hard sometimes!"

She went on: "And especially as a first time mom, I have so much compassion for myself already knowing what anxiety is going to tell me to worry about.

"If you are a mama or even pet parent with anxiety, pat yourself on the back today. This is no easy feat but we got this."

EXCITING NEWS

Last month, Isabel and Jacob announced their pregnancy news  with several photos from a sweet photoshoot, which showed Jacob cradling his wife’s growing baby bump.

Alongside the photos, they wrote: "We are elated to share that the baby boy we have been dreaming of is coming this December."

She has since opened up about getting "stretch marks" and her changing body after trolls body-shamed her.

Back in February, one troll slammed Isabel for being “much bigger” than Jacob, 24.

BODY-SHAMERS

The TV personality took to Instagram to share some encouraging words after someone asked her to do a podcast episode on "the experience of being a curvy person with a skinnier partner."

She wrote: "This is something that isn’t talked about nearly enough and it leaves people feeling alone. That is my experience, I have often felt alone in this."

Isabel then described how photos of the couple result in comments like “she is so much bigger than him," “either she can cook or has a great personality," or even “that’s disrespectful, lose weight for your man.”

She continued: "The comments are then swiftly deleted by me and then the person is blocked," Isabel told her followers. "I am in a good place with my body now, I really am, but it still sucks to see them.

"A lot of body image issues stem from wanting to take up less space. And when you are 'bigger' than your partner, you can feel incredibly embarrassed by taking up more space than them."

Isabel isn't the only pregnant Roloff, as Jacob's brother Jeremy, 31, and his wife Audrey, 30, are expecting their third child together.

The couple revealed on Instagram they are expecting their third child  in November.

The couple are already the parents to son Bode James, one, and daughter Ember Jean, three.
